Plot
Parvathi
aka
Paaru,
a
restoration
architect
(Shraddha
Srinath)
leaves
her
home
to
avoid
getting
married.
She
comes
to
Kochi
and
stays
in
a
house
that
previously
belonged
to
Maara
(Madhavan).
The
sketches
that
Maara
left
behind
deeply
impresses
Paaru,
who
begins
her
mission
to
meet
him.
Who
is
Maara
and
how
Paaru
finally
meets
him
forms
the
crux
of
the
story.
Script
&
Direction
Maara,
which
is
an
adaptation
of
Dulquer
Salmaan
starring
Malayalam
blockbuster

Charlie,
stays
true
to
the
essence
of
the
original.
This
Madhavan-starrer
stands
high
with
its
heartfelt
making
style
and
beautiful
character
sketches.
Director-writer
Dhilip
Kumar
and
co-writer
Bipin
have
chosen
a
different
route
to
narrate
Maara’s
story,
which
makes
it
unique
and
highly
appealing.
The
main
attraction
of
the
film
is
its
titular
character,
who
is
in
his
40s
and
has
a
solid
backstory
(unlike
Charlie,
who
is
a
more
mysterious
gypsy
soul),
which
makes
him
more
relatable.
The
film
chooses
to
ignore
the
mystery
factor
surrounding
Maara
after
a
point,
which
might
take
away
the
excitement
factor
at
times.
The
second
half,
especially
the
climax
portions,
lacks
the
expected
impact
due
to
the
deviations
it
took
from
the
main
plot.
Similarly,
the
story
of
Maara
and
Paaru
begins
on
a
high
note
but
gets
a
rather
underwhelming
end.
In
short,
the
extra
layers
that
are
added
to
the
main
plot
and
the
alterations
made
ended
up
as
both
the
strength
and
weakness
of
this
Madhavan-starrer.
The
sub-plots
lack
the
much-needed
effectiveness
at
certain
points
and
go
a
bit
overboard
(not
a
major
let
down
though).
However,

Maara
is
definitely
going
to
be
an
extremely
endearing
movie
experience
for
the
audiences
who
haven’t
watched

Charlie.
Performances
Madhavan
once
again
proves
his
impeccable
acting
skills
and
unmatchable
on-screen
charisma
with
the
character
Maara.
The
role
of
the
middle-aged
wandering
artist
is
tailor-made
for
the
talented
actor.
He
instantly
connects
with
the
audiences
with
his
earned
performance.
Shraddha
Srinath,
on
the
other
hand,
has
delivered
a
subtle
yet
brilliant
performance
as
Paaru.
The
actress’ exceptional
ability
to
convey
the
slightest
emotions
with
her
expressive
face,
deserves
applause
(a
special
mention
to
the
voice
artist
who
has
dubbed
for
Shraddha).
The
rest
of
the
star
cast,
including
Sshivada,
MS
Bhaskar,
Mouli,
Seema,
Maala
Parvathy,
and
so
on
are
perfect
in
their
respective
roles.
Technical
Aspects
The
brilliant
cinematography
by
Dinesh
Krishnan
and
Karthik
Muthukumar
is
the
biggest
highlight
of
the
movie.
The
extraordinary
visuals,
that
does
complete
justice
to
the
original,
makes
Maara
a
poetic
experience.
The
art
department
has
done
an
excellent
job.
Ghibran,
the
music
composer
has
done
a
decent
job
with
the
songs
of
the
movie.
But
the
background
score
could
have
been
a
bit
more
impactful.

Verdict
Maara
is
a
breath
of
fresh
air
in
the
Tamil
film
industry.
This
Madhavan-Shraddha
Srinath
starrer
has
its
own
minor
flaws,
but
that
doesn’t
prevent
it
from
putting
a
smile
on
the
audience’s
faces.
